We are excited to be collaborating with Avid.

Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, an Emmy® Award winning accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce an integrated file transfer solution for the Avid® MediaCentral Platform.

Through Avid Everywhere®, Avid delivers the industry’s most open, innovative, and comprehensive media platform connecting content creation with collaboration, asset protection, distribution, and consumption of media.

The integration of FileCatalyst’s acceleration technology with Avid’s production asset management solutions streamlines multi-site workflows by enabling editors and producers to easily transfer media, sequences, and shot lists between Interplay workgroups directly from within Avid Media Composer.

FileCatalyst’s UDP-based file transfer technology transfers digital media at maximum rates, without being impeded by network impairments, such as latency and packet loss experienced with TCP/IP. The FileCatalyst protocol offers incredible speed gains versus traditional methods, allowing users transfer speeds of up to hundreds of times faster than FTP. FileCatalyst’s unique, patent pending UDP-based protocol accelerates file transfers, regardless of size or format, resulting in transfers that take minutes, instead of hours or days.

"We are excited to be collaborating with Avid, a leading solutions provider in the media and entertainment space,” says Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development at Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc. “This partnership allows for users to not only manage their digital assets efficiently, but also to send and receive them at accelerated speeds with FileCatalyst.”
